But I'd been impressed with the leaf print tights I ordered recently from Tightsplease, so when they asked me if I wouldn't mind reviewing one of their other pairs I was more than happy to. They sent me these Red or Dead "Addy" tights, which I wore today and definitely like so far.
I do like printed / patterned tights, but I'm not a fan of those "barely black" ones with patterns on. I was therefore pleased when these were a nice thick opaque black, with a double seam in grey running up the back. They're nice and thick, which I was grateful for when I went outside to find it was -7C when I left for work. They feel as though they'll last nicely for a while.
I didn't seem to have any problems with the seams not staying in place, which is something of a bugbear with some seamed stockings and tights I've worn in the past; the nice effect is ruined somewhat if your seam is running around your leg.
As for the rest of the outfit, I picked up this skirt from Forever 21 when I was in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago, mainly because it's rather similar to one I used to love to wear around the Christmas season. I love brocade fabrics, as there seems to be something a little luxurious about them. These brocade heels from Faith (years ago) are an old favourite, but still going strong.
Due to the temperature, I threw on a jumper (picked up in a couple of colours from Primark - again in Bham) and my floor-length faux fur coat before leaving the house. Probably could have done with a scarf as well!
